Cheap Flights to the Faroe Islands

Located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Iceland and Norway, the Faroe Islands are a collection of self-governing islands within the Kingdom of Denmark. Comprised of 18 rocky volcanic islands connected by bridges, tunnels, and ferries, the Faroe Islands are known for their undeniably beautiful, dramatic landscapes. With their steep coastal cliffs, picturesque valleys, and gorgeous green mountains, the Faroe Islands are home to more than 2 million breeding pairs of seabirds, making it a top destination for bird-watchers around the world.

The archipelago's tranquil islands are a welcome escape for anyone needing a break from the big city madness. To book a cheap flight to the Faroe Islands, try using Skyscanner's search tool above! You can even narrow your search to the cheapest month to find the best deals year-round.

Getting to the Faroe Islands

Vágar Airport (FAE) is the only airport in the Faroe Islands, which means you'll need to rent a car or take the bus to reach the islands' major cities. Due to their remote location, there are no direct flights from Canada to the Faroe Islands. However, you can fly there from Scandinavia through SAS or direct from the UK through Atlantic Airways.

Travelers should note that summer fog can be a real problem for airlines flying to the Faroe Islands, so it's important to add an extra couple of days to your trip in case your flight is diverted to Iceland until the fog clears.

Despite their self-governing nature, the Faroe Islands are still considered to be part of the Kingdom of Denmark. Canadians can visit any part of Denmark for up to 90 days without a visa. Your passport must be valid for at least 3 months past your expected date of departure to avoid any issues entering the country.

The Best Time to Visit the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands have a very short tourist season (from May to September) due to their harsh climate and northern location. Most tourists choose to visit in July or August to maximize the possibility of good weather and take advantage of the longer days. For the best deals on flights and hotels, consider taking a trip during late May or early September instead. You'll beat the tourist rush and feel like you have the whole island to yourself!

What to Do in the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are a very popular bird-watching destination due to their massive population of seabirds. In fact, the Islands are home to the largest colony of storm petrels in the world! However, the islands are also popular with nature-lovers, hikers, and adventure seekers. There are bus tours available, as well as horseback trekking, mountain hikes, and boat trips to explore the untouched archipelago at your own pace.

In the summer, the islands turn into a lush green paradise, with a mystical summer fog often descending on the peaks of mountains and cliffs. Many have compared it to the landscapes seen in Lord of the Rings, so you won't want to miss it! The capital city, Tórshavn, can be reached by ferry or car from the airport within an hour. There you'll find a wide variety of shops and restaurants featuring traditional Faroe Islands cuisine, as well as museums highlighting their rich history and culture.
